Putting together a new season is always an exciting and challenging creative process. There are so many wonderful programming options. What occasions do we want to mark? What works go well together? Who and what would our audience be excited to hear? Who would we like to work with, old friends and new? After all, Calgary boasts such a wonderful community of world class artists. Decisions, decisions!
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we present our 2014-15 edition – The Civic @39—Organic, Operatic, Exotic. It is a year of wonderful variety: from the opening concert featuring Calgary’s Neil Cockburn playing Epcor’s mighty Carthy Organ, to our traditional holiday concert featuring our old friends Cantaré Children’s Choir, to an exciting new collaboration with Cowtown Opera, to the annual unveiling of outstanding young Calgarian virtuosi in the C3 winners’ concert, to the season’s finale with CPO principal cellist Phil Hansen, there is something for everyone! Major works include Saint-Saëns ever popular “Organ” Symphony, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Golijov’s fabulously evocative 21st century cello concerto, Azul, and Brahm’s songful and joyous Second Symphony.
The Civic@39—it’s an awesome age. I hope you will join us!
